(Thank-you to all the dear hearts who swung by our zine stall at yesterday's Festival of the Photocopier.)

This post was initially intended as a thank-you to all of you who swung by our stall at yesterday's Festival of the Photocopier, but as I was piecing it together my twitter feed was awash with gruesome details. Though I've yet to find the stomach to watch the recently screened Four Corners exposé, Making a Killing, on the greyhound industry and live baiting, it makes me very glad that I volunteer fortnightly at the RSPCA. Even when I get snowed under with work, my time spent cleaning, walking, and caring for those beautiful dogs helps me to feel like I am making a difference. It is something I will always find time for.
Thanks Sticky for another great fair. Thanks to those of you who came along. It was great to meet you. And "thank-you for the much needed balance." Here's to the next one! And here's to all creatures great and small.
RSPCA's End Cruel Training Practices campaign
"Putting together animals, gambling and prize purses is a toxic mix. It's capable of turning men into monsters."
